|Your solution works! Attach the latch assembly to the top of the open dishwasher as described. This pops the assembly open enough to attach the latch handle as you described. I had better luck putting the smaller tabs in first. This held the handle in place and let me use water pump pliers to squeeze the latch assembly. The larger hinge (tabs) went right in. Now that I know the trick, it's less than a 5-minute job. Too bad Maytag doesn't tell us how to do it. It would provide them with much happier DIY customers. I'm guessing that the metal pins stuck in the larger hinge (tabs) may be reinforcement for the plastic hinges.
